I'm deeply interested in our country. I'm intrigued by our heads of state whether they be a D or an R or an I. I'm highly attentive to reports coming out of our nation's capital. I watch CNN and FOX to see who's slamming who; often not good news.
I'm really frustrated with the nation's leaders of every political brand. Have they never met us? America? How out of touch can the three political sides of congress be? I reference the discussion on several talk shows, plus newspaper reports regarding the need for distribution of wealth tied with the call for all to serve as a volunteer in America. Be they kidding or just plain ignorant?
Are these guys and gals clueless that there is a strong system in America already fulfilling their call while they parade en mass before the mics to make such remarks? Such a force is called church as well as philanthropy. Are they not aware distribution of wealth has been going on as long as us? Where do they think all of the abundant foundations, hospital wings, and grants come from? Congress? How many combined millions...even billions...would we guess churches budget and then take up additional special contributions to assist the masses in need? The figures would be staggering....daily.
Volunteers? What do they call church groups who blanket America as well as foreign fields to assist in crisis after crisis? My wager is churches did more for victims of hurricane Katrina than government both financially and certainly in man-power. And, where did the government get its money to spend on these matters? From the very same volunteers who pay taxes and, in addition, fork over extravagant amounts of money for benevolence.
To all three brands holding office in congress, I for one want to say you have an extremely good idea....but your constituents have been practicing what you propose for 200 years. Welcome to our world. If you ever met America you would know we are waiting on you to catch on to the great heart of this country. It isn't called potential. It is called action....and we've been taking it for a long time. I think you have to....but you evidently have forgotten how much is going on beneath Washington's insightful radar.
